<TITLE>The Entry Button Line</TITLE>
<PARA>
There is one button on this line for each currently loaded entry. The buttons
indicate which entries are active and allow the user to toggle each entry
between the active and inactive states. The default entry can be set by
clicking the right mouse button (see <XREF LINKEND="MOUSEBUTTONS">) on an
entry.

<SECT1 ID="VIEWS">
<TITLE>The Overview and DNA Views</TITLE>
<PARA>
The overview and DNA view take up most of the main window (see <XREF
LINKEND="MAINWINDOW-BREAKDOWN">). Both views act in a very similar way, so
they are described in the same section. In particular they both show the
forward and reverse strands of the sequence and a representation of the three
translation frames in each direction. The forward sequence is read from
the EMBL entry, the reverse sequence is derived from the forward one by
complementing it. In the overview shows only the stop codons of each
translation frame, but in the DNA view the shows the complete six frame
translation.
</PARA>
<PARA>
The horizontal scrollbar controls which part of the sequence is
currently visible. The scroll bar at the left controls the zoom level.

<SECT2 ID="VIEWS-OTHERMOUSE">
<TITLE>Other Mouse Controlled Functions</TITLE>
<PARA>
Double clicking on a feature with the first mouse button causes both views and
the feature list to centre themselves on that feature. Similarly, double
clicking the first mouse button on a base or amino acid will centre both views
on that base/amino acid.
</PARA>
<PARA>
A double click of the middle mouse button on a feature will open an edit
window for that feature. This is the same as clicking once and then choosing
the Edit Selected Features menu item (see <XREF
LINKEND="EDITMENU-EDIT-SELECTED-FEATURES">).

<SECT1 ID="GRAPHS">
<TITLE>Graphs and Plots</TITLE>
<PARA>
The DNA plots are accessed from the Graph menu (see <XREF
LINKEND="GRAPHMENU">). When a graph is turned on it is locked to the
overview window, so it will follow the overview window when the overview is
scrolled. It will also automatically change the viewing scale to match the
scale of the overview window. The vertical scrollbar to the right of the
graph controls the window size of algorithm.
</PARA>
<PARA>
The feature plots window (see <XREF LINKEND="VIEWMENU-SHOW-FEATURE-PLOTS">)
has a horizontal scroll bar that sets the position of the plot in the feature.
As with the DNA plots, the vertical scrollbar to the right of the graph
controls the window size of algorithm.
</PARA>
<PARA>
Note that clicking the left mouse button on the plot will show the base or
residue at that position. Clicking the right mouse button will pop-up a menu.
The menu contains a toggle which controls whether the graph is scaled and some
menu items which allow the maximum window size to be set.
